this is something my mom did, in the 70's
over the kitchen sink, she did this mural and at the time she made the handles into rose blossoms. molded them, fired, glazed, painted and fired a second time.
they have since been removed but at least the mural still stands.
this is painted porcelain...the paint never dries, until fired at about 1,700 degrees and most likely this was done in at least 3 fires. that's a lot of tiles to keep track of, while having it laying down on some type of work table.
I wasn't into paying attention, back in those days. (I could kick myself now)
I need to go back to see if I can take better pictures. they turned out better with a flash, which I didn't use but for about two of the photos.
I hadn't been back to that place for 34 years.
